We hike in about a month!


I am getting VERY excited about our R2R2R hike in about one month !!!

We just spent a glorious week on a Grand Canyon whitewater rafting trip, so we previewed the Bright Angel Trail and the day we were on the South Rim it was 60 degrees … hard to believe in a month it will be over 100 degrees in the inner corridor and instead of trying to stay warm we will be fighting the sun and heat.  This photo was taken on a day hike around Stone Creek.

I have added some new things to my gear list this year, including some CoolQ clothes, headbands, and a cold towel.  These are made of those performance fabrics that keep you cool when sweaty and so far so good in the Arizona heat.   The real test will be in the Canyon, of course.

See you soon …
